Come along to our fortnightly photo sessions to dust off your camera and get snap-happy with a professional photography instructor. Brush up on your camera skills and learn new photography techniques whilst on a casual photo walk with other local photographers. No formal lectures, just a chance to meet-up, share ideas and receive feedback!
We have a different photo theme each fortnight and the two hour sessions take place in different outdoor locations across Adelaide. Great opportunity to try something new with the guidance of a professional photographer, and come away with some new shots for your portfolio or album.
Complete beginner? We recommend starting with the Photography for Beginners Class, which is a 3 hour structured workshop where you’ll learn the basics of using your camera with more 1-on-1 time with the instructor.
Looking to learn more? Come along to the group sessions, which are more casual and informal than other workshops, and with more time to take photos and put your new skills into practice.
What to bring? We recommend bringing a camera that has full manual mode or semi-manual modes (Aperture or Shutter Priority). Compact cameras and smartphones also welcome!
What’s involved? Each session starts with an introduction to the fortnight’s theme, and the photography instructor will chat about the camera settings and techniques to use. You’ll then have time to take lots of photos, with the instructor present to answer any questions. You’ll receive feedback and have a chance to chat with everyone to share tips and ideas. We’re a social bunch!
Water can provide some amazing photo opportunities, and has been a source of inspiration for many great photographers. In this session will be looking at a range of camera settings to use when photographing water, from freezing action to long exposures. A tripod and ND filters would be beneficial (but not essential) for this session.
Good to meet people and bounce ideas around. I didn't intend to go to learn as I've been doing it a while but used it to get out of my block. 4/5 by Darryl Wolfendale 14-4-2019

I found it very enjoyable, and Chris Weisz was very informative and approachable. The group was a good size, which allowed plenty of opportunity to discuss photography topics with Chris. I think we were all glad that the event had been rescheduled due to extreme heat the weekend before. 5/5 by Beth Mack 10-3-2019
Loved it, Chris had so much patience when asking a question and it was informative. I certainly learnt a good number of things which I did not know previously and loved that we could take photos and ask for his opinion and advice. I also enjoyed the interaction with the group members, I’ve made some new friends. Now it’s time for me to do some more practice and improve my skills.

Th event would be best described in future as a meetup event with guidance when required. It was well facilitated by Chris, he was open to questions, and open for people to borrow his equipment if needing to explore new options. 5/5 by Ciaran Whelan 25-11-2018
